(SGI) has started with a single office in California and with several years of growth, it expanded to twelve offices with an employee count of 270.

This proposal solves the needs for communication between branches, Data transfer and sharing within and between offices, File Storage and management and Administration workflow automation.

The corporate office finds it very difficult to merge
